Q1: The Rules page at http://www.swcombine.com/rules/?Creatures, under Creature_Spawning, says:

Creatures will only spawn on

I'm guessing that should either be "planetary terrain square" or simply "terrain square," yes?

Q2: Are the spawning rates as listed on http://www.swcombine.com/rules/?Planetary_Grids correct? Meaning, the Forest rate is 15%, Grassland is 12%, Jungle 10% and so on?

Q3: Is this equation for finding spawned creatures, correctly written:

Chance of finding = ( 1 + Stealth (Perception/30+0.05) ) * Terrain Creature Probability

Meaning, if a character had a Perception of 4 and a Stealth of 4, then the percentage chance of finding a spawned creature in a Forest terrain square would be:

(1 +4 (4/30 +0.05) * 15% = 1 + 4 (0.133 + 0.05) * 15% = 5.138 x 15% = 77.07%, or is it 0.7707% ?

The difference is, whether you take the total (5.138 x 15) and assign a percentage to it, or if you multiply the first half of the equation, 5.138, by 15%, which gives you the lower number.

Q4: What is this spawning equation applied to? Is it the possibility of finding one or more creature groups per

Much obliged!

Creatures will only spawn on

*planets*where there are no characters, vehicles, ships, or other creatures except the character and their party.I'm guessing that should either be "planetary terrain square" or simply "terrain square," yes?

*entire terrain square,*or of finding a group per*individual section*of a 20 x 20 terrain area you search in?Much obliged!
